Bed And Breakfast Establishments
Bed and breakfast establishments have a rich historical lineage to them. They haven’t sprung up just in recent decades. They have been in fact around for centuries in different forms in various other countries. Ever since people have been moving back and forth various places on earth , there has been a primal need to seek dwelling at night time for rest and eating.
In that regard one could say the bed and breakfast establishments have been there ever since the dawn of civilization its self. Despite the popularity of bed and breakfast lodging in continental America with so many of these establishments doing brisk businesses in the busy inter state highways and tourist towns in America , there was a time when they had fallen out of favor by tourists in recent decades.
Many of these places were stereotyped to be shady establishments frequented by drifters, vagabonds and fugitives. But not anymore, as brilliant entrepreneurs over the years have given the whole bed and breakfast industry a face lift. No longer are these shady places where criminals come.
Owing to their significant cost advantage and home like environments many people prefer the cosiness of bed and breakfasts over that of the impersonal and exorbitantly expensive five star hotels. Many people in light of the recent boom in bed and breakfast have also converted their own properties into bed and breakfast establishments trying to attract paying guests and also making considerable side income as well.
Galena il bed and breakfast stands as a prominent example of how a rich heritage and architecture can go a long way in ensuring unique appeal of a bed and breakfast joint. Being converted form a mansion constructed in the late eighteenth century by James M Ryan .
The place in itself is a tourist destination, with many people planning to come to the town of Galena just to experience the rich heritage present in the confines of this artfully constructed edifice. No wonder it stands as a prized possession in galena hotels.
